EBITDA is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.  EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards and, therefore, may not to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.  Management believes that EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure, which provides an indication of the results generated by Circa's primary business activities prior to consideration of how those activities are financed, amortized or taxed.  Readers are cautioned, however, that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to comprehensive income determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the Company's financial performance. EBITDA is calculated by the Company as follows:

Consolidated sales for the second quarter of 2014 were $7.1 million -- a  25.2% increase over the same period in 2013. The increase in sales is primarily from the Telecom segment, which saw a 55.9% increase in sales over the same period in 2013, due to an increase in orders in its Telecom OEM products.

As a result of the increased sales, the Company earned an after tax profit of $316,000, compared to after tax profit of $178,000 in the second quarter of 2013.  Total comprehensive income decreased by $29,000; from a profit $253,000 in Q2 2013 to $224,000 in Q2 2014.  The drop in comprehensive income is attributed to exchange differences on the translation of foreign currency.

Grant Reeves, Circa's Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, stated:

"The Company posted excellent results for the second quarter and first half of the year chiefly as a result of Telecom OEM demand and to a lesser extent its Metals business. The Company expects to satisfy the majority of its Telecom OEM requirements for an underlying project in the third quarter. As a result of the anticipated conclusion of the underlying project the Company expects its product mix and volumes in the future to reflect this event. We are actively pursuing strategic additions to our portfolio that will allow the Company to continue its growth and profitable results."
